Wild swimming is a pastime quickly growing in popularity. Instead of swimming in pools, participants make the most of the beautiful outdoors by swimming in lakes or rivers. Many rivers in the UK are a bit chilly for much of the year, which might be off-putting to potential swimmers; however, a holiday aboard in warmer climes is the ideal time to try this fantastic sport. When you cruise Dalmatia with boat hire in Croatia, there are numerous places to dip your toes in the stunningly clear waters.
